About

A FREE family fun weekend at Steam on the Dock. 

Steam engines on both land and sea, from dinky miniatures to huge, towering lorries. See these shiny, grand machines of the industrial age up close and in full steam! Be thrilled by the showman engines - colossal machines and guaranteed show-stoppers at any steam rally. Blink or you’ll miss the speedy Steam Bregazzi Buggy - a nifty, hand-made steam machine, which will be speeding around the Dock delivering coal to her bigger relatives.

There’ll also be music and spectacle. From juggling peacock feathers to stilt walking - be prepared to be amazed! Also keep an eye out for The Curious Contrivance - trundling along with its wings flapping, pistons pumping and the inevitable sounds of gas propulsion.
